  1. That sounds good. Great really. As to the length of the game combining the two, I could see an entire weekend campaign requiring a lot of time, but it would be pretty cool.
  2. I think a cool thing would be to squad them, say a Falcon and two X-wings or a Falcon and a wingman--something to that effect. An added element to the game would be that if squads of ships engage each other in space around the capital ships that part of a turn would merge over into X-Wing where a squad of those same ships would be able to engage the aggressor, on an side mat. It would be a neat way to pull the scale of the game from epic mode into standard mode, then resolve that conflict then pull back out into the Armada game. Just an idea. When I saw the mini CR-90 I couldn't help but think how fun it would be to combine the two games in an interesting way that plays to both their strengths. It would be complicated. But sure could be a lot of fun.
  3. I honestly think it will be Peter Jackson--for the big final.
  4. Hmmmm, that makes R2 a pretty attractive option.
  5. What if you don't yet have any face down cards? If you roll a hit, do you take a face up damage card, or do you do nothing because you just lost your shields but have not yet taken damage?
  6. I think you can still use HLC at range 1. You just don't right now because you get 4 dice with everything else that can take it. That's why I've never used it yet. However, with a barrel roll, that might make it worthwhile for this.
  7. I continue to be impressed with the innovation and sheer creativity shown by Fantasy Flight Games.
  8. yotta quest sounds familiar... is that in IL or IA? I didn't make it to a tourny this weekend though I was looking at stores around my area... edit: enjoyed the right up and vid. thanks for sharing! It's in Cincinnati, Ohio. Nice place! That video is a walk down memory lane. Lol
  9. I was one left turn away from winning a ship as my Falcon was blocked by another Falcon in the corner of the mat during the Imdaar Alpha tournament in Cincinnati. A year ago if someone had told me that I’d be in a gaming tournament, I’d have said they were nuts. But I love X-Wing Miniatures so much that I went to my first gaming event ever but didn’t understand the scoring as well as I should have. The guy playing against me gave me a handshake congratulating me on my victory and we both went to filling out our sheets for the next round. If I moved a sharp three to clear his base I’d still overlap him. If I took the easy 3, I’d be off the map. So we stayed locked like that until the time ran out. I could have taken a hard 1 to the left and gotten off him, but the next turn would carry me off the map. However, he had one hit left and I was at range one with Han’s reroll. So it wasn’t much of a risk to get a couple of hits, but we figured that Han was more valuable point wise than Chewie so I’d get the win. But, Chewie had more upgrades than I did, so he still had two more points on the board which we realized when we filled out our closing sheets from the match. If I had only turned hard left, and blasted, I’d have a Wave 4 ship. But that’s a hard lesson that I will never forget regarding scoring. I put some pictures along with some other comments about the event on this article at this link: http://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2014/06/02/assault-at-imdaar-alpha-the-tie-phantom-is-clearly-the-new-dominate-ship-in-the-game/ Overall, I was very impressed with the new ships. The TIE Phantom looked to me to be the most dominate ship—clearly. But they all looked interesting and fun to play. It was a great event and a lot of fun. Everyone had a great time and it was well worth an afternoon of gaming. A nice job by everyone involved, as usual from Fantasy Flight down to the store we played at,Yottaquest.
  10. And does the defender get to evade, and if the attack does not hit, the tantive attacks the second time? I avoid using a gunner in the Falcon because of the similar wording.
  11. Very. Cool. The area around the engines for one, and the frame of the body around the dish. The angles are thin and difficult for a mold to hold a radius and still get all the scribe lines correct.
  12. I'll have to have a look. The bottom had my attention I didn't notice that on the transport.
  13. I have thought for a long time that the only way to manufacture these miniatures for the X-Wing game is with a 3D printer, and I wonder if that is not why there are delays in shipments from release dates. I have been looking at the Tantive with a magnifying glass and there is no way these things are injection molded. I played several games with it over the weekend, and put pictures at the following link. With all the Star Wars news lately I wanted to capture some of that enthusiasm. http://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2014/05/24/a-force-for-change-the-deep-power-of-mythology-to-unleash-human-imagination-and-potential/ The Tantive is just so well done, it is simply a marvel to look at just as a model. This kind of detail just would not have been possible at any time before now. I have worked with injection molded plastics and there just isn't any way to get flow separation like what the Rebel Transport has on the bottom any other way than with a 3D printer. Does anybody know if this is the case? Not that it makes any difference to me, but it has me curious, and amazed.
  14. In the rules, it says the mines must be spread Range 1-2 of each other. Doesn't that just mean at least Range 2? And rolling possibley 6 attack dice at range one with a damage effect is pretty serious. That can do a lot of damage. I can see how turning those mines quickly would become a major issue.
